Research and Markets: How Will Mobile Wallets Affect the Travel Experience?

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/rrr8d8/how_will_mobile) has announced the addition of PhoCusWright's new report "How Will Mobile Wallets Affect the Travel Experience?" to their offering.

We've all heard the idea that our bulky wallets will one day be replaced by digital wallets - wallets that will live on our mobile devices, store our identification and payment information, and enable us to pay for goods and services by waving our smartphones across a reader.

Tech news stories would have us believe that such a dramatic change is imminent, but the truth is that what's available today - especially in the travel industry - falls far short of this high-tech vision.

This article explores the current state of mobile wallets and payments and provides insight into how mobile wallets are improving - and will improve - the travel experience.

Key Topics Covered:

- M-Wallets: What Are They, Exactly?

- Tablets vs. Smartphones in M-Commerce

- CM-Wallet Providers

- Aggregators

- New Entrants

- Barriers to M-Wallets

- To NFC or Not to NFC? That Is the Question

- M-Wallets in the Travel Industry

- Providers

- Emerging Markets

- The Evolution of M-Wallets
